Donate to the English Department; we appreciate your support!


For open gifts that help the English Department itself in many ways, the Foundation maintains the English Department Advancement Fund.

The English Department, its students, and its faculty, benefit greatly from several different funds. Included are the following scholarship funds:

  • Jane Colville Betts English Scholarship
  • Nan Dougherty English Education Scholarship
  • Les Gilbertson Scholarship
  • Gloria Hochstein English Student Opportunity Grant
  • Kirkwood Poetry Award
  • Elizabeth G. Morris English Scholarship
  • John W. Morris Scholarship
  • Clara B. Small Memorial Scholarship
  • Nadine St. Louis Creative Writing Scholarship
  • Maurice & Alma Swan English Teacher Education Scholarship

Each of these serves a slightly different purpose. To donate, please visit the UW - Eau Claire Foundation's donations page. To find funds specific to the English Department use the "Search Here" link and select the English Department in the dropdown.

There is also a fund set up by Patricia and Bernard "Duffy" Duyfhuizen to help English Department faculty to pursue major scholarly projects, the Duyfhuizen Professorship in English.

And a fund to support English faculty lecture series at the L. E. Phillips Memorial Library in downtown Eau Claire, the Elizabeth Morris Library Outreach Fund.

Again, to donate to any of these funds, please visit the UW - Eau Claire Foundation's donations page.
